Machinists Union Celebrates Native American Heritage Month

November marks Native American Heritage Month to pay tribute to Native American people and their many sacrifices, diverse contributions, and achievements.

The IAM is grateful and proud to celebrate Native Americans in our union, and beyond, many of whom have played a significant role in advancing and defending workers’ rights.

The IAM has been critical to increase awareness of the issues affecting our Native American siblings in the workplace and their communities. 

“We recognize that Native Americans face many labor and employment disparities compared to other communities,” said IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. “The IAM recommits to continue advocating for the inclusion and advancement of this resilient community not only in the labor movement but in the country as a whole.”

If you are an IAM member and want to get involved in Native American issues, you can reach out to Julie Frietchen at (301) 967-4747 or
